Happy New Year: Here’s a Sampling of What We’re Fighting for in 2015 — From Fluoroquinolone Toxicity to Defective Takata Air Bags and Overtime Violations
New Years Day — meet New Year’s Resolutions. For those who have been injured either physically or financially by a negligent company, resolutions can be a tall order: Stand Up For Yourself, Speak Up, Do Something About It and Suffer in Quiet No More. These are actions that require tremendous strength and courage… but you’re not alone.
Baron & Budd lawyers are committed to helping individuals who have been wrongfully injured — whether it be from dangerous chemicals in schools, deadly exposure to mesothelioma, the Gulf Oil Spill or faulty or defective pharmaceuticals or medical devices.
We’re here to help you speak up against the negligent corporation or entity that harmed you. And while our lawyers are experienced with helping a variety of individuals with very different problems, ailments or injuries — one thing is for sure, in early 2015, we’re going to be seeing a lot of people hurt by the defective Takata air bags, fluoroquinolone antibiotic toxicity and unpaid overtime wages.
Here’s what you need to know about these issues.
The manufacturer of Takata air bags may have known for years that their air bag had serious, potentially life-threatening defects. Our lawyers are currently representing drivers in a potential lawsuit related to the recall. If you were seriously injured in an accident involving the defective airbags, we want to hear from you. To learn more, contact us immediately at 866-723-1890 or contact us online.
Fluoroquinolones are commonly prescribed antibiotics that were initially intended for serious and/or life-threatening infections. Today, fluoroquinolone antibiotics are prescribed for a variety of not-so-serious infections like ear infections and urinary tract infections. Unfortunately, some people who take fluoroquinolone antibiotics may develop permanent nerve damage, or peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy has many symptoms including loss of sensation in limbs and shooting or tingling pains and may affect mobility. If you or someone you know took a fluoroquinolone antibiotic such as Cipro, Levaquin or Avelox, and have peripheral neuropathy, please contact us immediately at 866-520-2755 or contact us online.
Not being paid overtime is a crime — and as all too common one. Baron and Budd lawyer Allen Vaught is protecting those who have been taken advantage of by being denied overtime pay. If you or someone you know has worked overtime and not been paid fairly for your work, please contact Allen at 214.521.3605 or [contatctlink]
As we begin this New Year, we look forward to helping you Protect What’s Right. Thank you for doing your part, too and Happy New Years!
